Bio

Kent Diimmel

Growing up in the Northwest corner of Washington state in the small town of Clallam Bay, Kent Diimmel developed a passion for drums at a young age and instantly gravitated towards Rock, Singer-Songwriter and Country music. Being 1 of 38 people in his entire highschool, pursuing music was not an option in that area. After shedding through the local music scene, it was soon clear that Kent needed to expand his horizon beyond the limits of his hometown.

"Having 38 people in your entire highschool doesn't give you many opportunities as a musician, but it does give you plenty of practice time!"

In 2012 Kent decided to move to Hollywood California to pursue his dreams in music. He attended the world renowned Musicians Institute College on Hollywood Blvd. After graduation he was then hired at the college and became a part time employee. It was here that Kent got his feet wet playing in cover bands and original projects all over southern California.

Now rocking hard out of Seattle Washington, Kent Diimmel is currently touring/playing for the metal band In This Moment. Kent is also playing percussion in the acoustic super group Blackfall. Looking ahead into the future, Kent is actively pursuing his opportunities in the industry as a session and live performer. He is continuing to serve artists and producers with his Precise, Powerful and yet elegant style behind the drum kit both on and off stage.

Dios returns in 2018!

The new Dios series takes the core of the previous line and adds in some of the innovations we have created over the last thirteen years of acoustic drum building. Thin, North-American maple shells, bullet tube lugs, and 20" deep kicks are back. New to the series are ddrum's proprietary FixPitch mounting system, which holds the drums firmly while providing maximum resonance. Bass drums feature our Resolifts for added support and decoupling from the floor.

Is the Dios kit right for me?

Dios Maple drums are perfect for any drummer looking for a larger than life drum kit experience. Our combination of features creates an extremely full and resonant drum sound, perfect for any style of music that needs a big drum presence, both sonically and visually.

What configuration should I choose

Dios Maple offers three configurations and add-on drums to suit most playing styles. For funk and fusion, the 20" kick config keeps it tight and punchy. On the opposite end, the 24" configuration is ready for all your giant grooves. Right up the middle comes our versatile 22" configuration, featuring an evenly spaced voicing of toms...for the jack of all trades that covers all the musical bases.

Choose a configuration:

Ordering from ddrum has never been easier. Choose from 20", 22", or 24" kick configurations.

What options do I need?

For those preferring to put together their own configuration, we offer all of our tom snare and bass drum sizes as individual drums. All Dios drums are available in one of 4 finishes. Satin black for those that want to keep it simple and clean. Satin gold for those that want to stick out a little more...and two sparkle finishes; red cherry and emerald green for the more ostentatious drummers out there.

About Dios

Originally introduced in 2009, the Dios Maple quickly rose to the position of our flagship drum kit. The combination of thin, North-American maple shells with a tube-style lug and thunderous 20" deep bass drums was a hit with artists and customers alike. As the market evolved, ddrum moved in those directions, and Dios was discontinued in 2012. It has however remained in the hearts and minds of our fans and every year we are asked: "Is Dios ever coming back?" Six years on, we can confidently say it's back...and better than ever.
